so as most of you know, last night was halloween. we spent the better part of the morning in four different thrift stores searching for a costume for manny. i recently purchased a rabbit mask (i just really wanted one- not because it was halloween, though the timing worked out quite well!), so he decided to be a hunter. i sewed him a sweet little double barrel shotgun (in about thirty minutes, so it was a bit wonky) to complete the look.
i hung with the dimasi family for a bit (i used to be their nanny), and lila and enzo of course made me so laugh a whole lot. when we were walking to the halloween party they were headed to, i was making small talk with lila and asked her who she is voting for. without even a hint of hesitation, she said "barack obama". she is five years old. i did not actually expect a response, but the one i got made me very happy. apparently she saw a program on television where kids vote for who they would pick for president if they could.
then manny and i headed over to silicon gallery. he and kaitlin were having a closing party for their show that was up this past month, mixed with a bit of a halloween party. we called it a night pretty early, after heading over to jb's for some snacks and drinks.

rick thought it was completely hilarious that a rabbit was sending text messages. those beautiful photographs you see in the background were taken by kaitlin (manny's were on the opposite wall).
